HOW TO RECOGNIZE WHEN TO ASK FOR HELP

 

Are you, or someone you know, at risk for suicide? Seek help if you notice any of the following warning signs:

  • Talking about wanting to hurt or kill oneself
  • Trying to get pills, guns, or other means to harm oneself
  • Talking or writing about death, dying or suicide
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Experiencing rage, uncontrolled anger or seeking revenge
  • Acting reckless or engaging in risky activities
  • Feeling trapped, like there's no way out
  • Saying or feeling there's no reason for living
  • Abusing drugs or alcohol
  • Withdrawing from friends or family
  • Having dramatic changes in mood
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Giving away possessions     

Veteran specific risks

  • Frequent deployments
  • Deployments to hostile environments
  • Exposure to extreme stress
  • Physical/sexual assault while in the service (not limited to women)
  • Length of deployments
  • Service related injury

If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, the first thing to do is ask for help. Asking for help can be as easy as picking up the phone and calling the Veterans Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273 TALK (8255) and pressing Option 1. The hotline is staffed around the clock, 365 days a year by trained professionals who know how to get you the help you need.

Here is a list of mental health resources you can contact for help.
